What I use to protect my hair from the Sun

Milk_shake incredible milk

Summer is here and I love every second of it! Now that I got used to the heat I'm here for it. But with hot days and intense sun rays there come certain risks. We all know the sun can harm your skin, but did you know it can also harm your hair? 

Luckily we don't have to hide our beautiful locks under hats if we don't want to. There are many products that offer sun hair protection

One of them is the Milk_shake Incredible Milk which I've been using. 

Milk_shake Incredible Milk

milk_shake incredible milk is an intense leave-in spray mask hair treatment that performs twelve actions: protects hair from UV rays; repairs all hair types; maintains color; protects from heat; detangles; maintains hair style; adds maximum shine; creates body and volume; controls frizz; banishes and prevents split ends; easy straightening; smoothes the cuticle.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, ... That Is what I heard when I found this brand. It sounds funny but at the same time also yummy. :)
This is supposed to be a 12-in-1 type of product but I've been mainly using it as a protection against the sun. 

what does it do?

Organic muru muru butter is extracted from the muru muru seed, and is rich in fatty acids that have a nourishing, soothing and moisturizing effect on hair and skin. It also contains vitamin A to repair, nourish and strengthen hair intense spray mask. The result is soft and silky hair with incredible volume. It is suitable for all hair types: color-treated, natural, fine coarse, straight or curly.

It comes with a handy pump dispenser. I shake it a bit before spraying so I get a nice consistency. I mean, it doesn't separate or anything like that, I just like to shake my milkshake. Hehe, see what I did there? :P

Because of the pump, it's really easy to spray on wet hair and brush it in. It leaves no residue, just a very nice scent - of intensive caramel candy. I personally love it, but it is quite intensive and it lingers. 

For this post, I did an experiment. I sprayed the Milk_shake Incredible Milk on my wet hair and left it air dry. I didn't use any other product that I usually do. I wanted to see what kind of curls it would give me. 

And ... It gave me ringlets. My hair was a tad messier and less defined on other parts, but it smelled amazing. 
Next time I'll use it as I usually do - with a bunch of other products. So it's not a styling product for my curls, but I do feel it helps with the sun bleaching

Protecting my hair from the Sun


+ looks amazing. I love the packaging design. It's so fresh!
+ smells deliciously strong of caramel candy
+ easy to use (has a pump)
+ helps protect your hair against sun rays (against heat and colour bleaching)
+ okay priced (16€ for 150ml) - I've seen drugstore brands that were more expensive


- I feel it will get used up quickly (after three uses there was 1 cm less of it in the bottle)


I don't know about the 12-in-1 claims, but I do feel it helps with protecting the hair from the sun and helps keep my hair colour intact. Of course, it won't stop my hair from washing out because of the regular washing (it is hot here after all).

I got it because I needed something to use to protect my hair and because I wanted to try this brand. And I'm glad I did - I enjoy using it and singing the famous song "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, And they're like, it's better than yours, Damn right it's better than yours".
